A lot of students are struggling occasionally with their mental health due to all different reasons. Many students are going through the same struggles somewhere in their time as a student and it is important to know that you are not alone in this. Therefore, Asset | SBIT wants to provide a place where everyone feels free to be themselves and to be open about their feelings.

Asset | SBIT is a place where we do not tolerate unacceptable behavior, so if someone harasses you, please do not hesitate to contact us!

What is a confidential contact person?

The task of the confidential contact person is to assist, inform, and advise you about possibilities. Whatever the approach is chosen, the confidential contact person will always act in consultation with and with consent of you.

Natan van der Knaap, our confidential contact person and vice-chairman, is here to have a talk if you struggle with a personal problem or do not feel safe at the association. He will never share anything you mention with any other party, but specifically will also never take action for you! He is here to offer a listening ear and refer you to the right person if this is needed. This could be for example the educational coordinator, but also the university psychologist. Natan can recommend or urge you to take action yourself, but after your talk this will be completely your own choice and responsibility. 

Get to know natan

Hello all, my name is Natan van der Knaap and I am the vice-chairman of Asset | SBIT 2022-2023. I am 23 years old and I am originally from Capelle aan den IJssel. In my spare time I like to play sports, watch football, drink beers, and party with my girlfriend and friends. 

If you ever feel the need to talk to anyone about anything, you can always contact me. I am happy to make time for you and we will try to find a time and place that suits us both. If you like we could go for a walk, have a phone call, or meet somewhere for a cup of coffee.

If you are a student with a personal problem or do not feel safe at the association, you can contact your confidential contact person via [email protected] This email will only go to Natan.

Disclaimer: We are not professional psychologists and are not able to help you in case of severe mental issues. However, we are able to guide you to the right persons who can help you and are more than willing to do so!
